The Best Grizzly Bear Viewing and Scenery in the Canadian Rockies!

Lake Louise is one of the best places on earth to see wild grizzly bears in their natural environment! Bears are often seen roaming below the Gondola by our guests almost daily during the summer months. Check out our Grizzly Bear & Wildlife Sightings Calendar to see for yourself!

As the grass turns green and new berries begin to flourish, one of the most powerful creatures will begin to roam in search of food. The grassy slopes below the gondola offer lush, rich vegetation for these incredible creatures. Is it any wonder that each summer the grizzly returns? Each year bears emerge from hibernation and call these alpine meadows their home. The Lake Louise Sightseeing Lift, Gondola & Interpretive Centre is committed to providing a protected environment for bears, and an educational and safe opportunity for guests to experience the natural beauty and wonder of this magnificent place!
